What is vicoden? And what is the side affect for it?  How many can you take before it become an addiction to you?

Each individual is different, but vicoden is nothing to mess around with.  It ranks high on the charts as being one of the most addictive drugs and is widely sold on the black market because of the addicts that cannot get it legitimately.  Be very careful taking this drug often and over a long period of time.

Lots of variables to answer that question.  What dosage are you taking?  How frequently?  For how long?  For what purpose?  It is an addictive medicine.  Opiates are also a Godsend for people in severe pain. Most other pain can medicated with nonaddictive drugs depending on what kind it is. The short answer is that if you take enough of it long enough you will be come physically dependent.  If you like the high and deliberately take it for the effects and take enough of it long enough you will become an addict. The times and amounts to reach that differ from person to person.

I can tell you this that I tried to detox off myself and the physical pain was to much. I live in Texas and I looked for months to find a detox place. It's hard to find. I finally found one by asking from a A.A. place. There in the phone book or by called A.A. I have to tell you mine kinda surprised me though. It lasted 5 days and hurt like hell, but I have to say the meds they gave me help a lot. I was up to about 15 pills a day and they were usually Vicodone ES 7.5 or whatever I could get. This lasted for about a year of hard use and now I have changed my life around. One last thing I attend meetings to help me like A.A. and N.A. because I know if I don't have help I'll use again. This is just a matter of time. Good luck
